Health care problems promised to get better


President Barack Obama says he takes full responsibility for the failed rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

The president spoke to NBC News exclusively, saying the administration didn't do a good enough job crafting the law. Millions of people have seen their policies canceled. That's after Mr. Obama promised they could keep their plan if they didn't want to be part of the so-called Obamacare.

That's not the only problem the new health care has run into. But U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says other issues will improve.

"The website for the Affordable Care Act that they call Obamacare is not working well but it's getting better. They predict by November 30th that people will have easy quick access to the information they need," said Durbin.

President Obama says he'll do everything he can to help people coping with health insurance cancellations.
